Levante’s derives its name from Levantine, the term that refers to the easternmost swath of the Mediterranean region, which includes coastal cities across Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, Syria, and Israel. The bistro-style menu reflects this name by featuring flavors and recipes from each of these distinctive yet regionally bound cultures. A wood-fired oven dominates the open kitchen, charcoal grilling veal cutlets, chicken skewers, and eggplant as the chefs load plates with freshly baked scraps of pita and flatbreads. Even the dining room's color scheme echoes the Mediterranean theme with its deep blues and stark whites, mimicking the vista of a sun-bleached village beside the sea.
